newborn photograph of a sleeping baby girl wrapped in purple with a purple beanie on a white fur rug in a timber bowl prop

Posted on April 12, 2019


At just 20 days new, Bella arrived at my Kallangur based photography studio with her dotting mum and dad for her newborn portrait session! What a beautiful family and enjoyable experience it was! I can already tell this little girl has mum and dad wrapped around her gorgeous little fingers!

Bella arrived in perfect time to try out some of my new photography props which had only just arrived. They included a gorgeous white washed wooden bowl, purple toned wraps and knitted bonnet, a white hand painted textured canvas backdrop and a dark timber floor board style backdrop.

My newborn portrait packages include the use of all my props, fabrics, outfits and headbands and there is almost always something new on the way. Keep your eyes peeled for the latest editions to my extensive collection which will feature in my upcoming blogs!

The below poses are commonly known as the ‘Side Pose’ and “Tummy” or “Toshie Up” pose and can be done with or without the fabrics draped over the baby. For Bella’s session, mum and dad decided to use a mix of creams, pale pinks and purples which I think all worked beautifully together.

These poses were all done on my posing bean bag at the start of the session before we brought out the props. She certainly made her self comfortable sleeping soundly for the first half of the session.

And here it is, my favorite ‘new’ backdrop. This custom hand painted canvas backdrop was created by the well known and very talented Brisbane Artist, Connie Van Lindt. I think it works perfectly with my new bowl and cream curly wool layer and not to mention the gorgeous Bella!

And then she woke and oh my gosh, those beautiful dark eyes! I just loved capturing her inquisitive nature. And how about those cheeks!!

As part of their ‘Platinum’ Session Package, Mum and Dad chose to have the second image enlarged on to their 20 inch x 30 inch professionally printed canvas and WOW! It is just beautiful!
